Thread Name: Songs to the John Brown/Battle Hymn tune
Subject: Songs to the John·Brown/Battle·Hymn tune
I remarked recently on one of the Villikins·&·Dinah threads that it was probably the most reused of all tunes, except perhaps for John·Brown/Battle·Hymn. There have been threads [notably one with 60+ hits in 2004] on all the songs people could think of to Villikins; but Search didn't produce a comparable one for John·Brown.

So — how many songs can we think of using this tune? — Here are a couple to start things off from my own campfire/back·of·coach sort of memories:

"When the Red Revolution Comes" ['We'll make Monty Burton wear a 50 shilling suit...']

"He'd like to find the WAAF who left her handbag in his chute" ['They scraped him off the tarmac like a lump of strawberry jam So he wont go jumping any more...']

Contributions, please?
